Dear Erickson Families & School Community:

We want Erickson Elementary to be the best elementary school in Ypsilanti! Unfortunately, this will not happen with just the funds allotted by the state. In an effort to enrich our students’ education, we are raising funds to provide our children with safe and fun playground equipment. Every student at Erickson benefits from the Write-A-Check Campaign!

Please help support the Erickson Elementary Parent Leadership Team Write-A-Check Campaign for 2017-2018 by making a donation today. Proceeds from the Write-A-Check Campaign go only to Erickson Elementary to fund the specific needs of our school.

Link to Erickson's Write-A-Check information

News and Events

Erickson 1st, 2nd & 3rd Grade Concert

This is a mandatory performance for all 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students. Music is a performance-based class, and this is our biggest “test” of the school year. If there is a scheduling conflict with the concert, please contact Ms. Weyhing directly, no later than Tuesday, November 20th.

As the temperature drops and the snow begins to fall, please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.

Warm coats, snow pants, hats, gloves and boots are necessary
